  It is ten years since Apple launched the iPhone and in this submission I look back and see what impact the technology has made to me and my life as a visually impaired person.   In 2007 Steve Jobs said ‘Today Apple is going to reinvent the phone’. I remember, as will many visually […]

My daisy player has died. Naturally, I went through all the correct palaver. Pressed all its buttons, in several combinations. Turned it off and on.

When it comes to keeping the household fed and watered, I’ve had my fair share of culinary disasters attributable to my poor sight. Never mind disasters which, well, just were. The Passion Cake pouring itself all over a work top instead of cooling on the rack comes immediately to mind. Baked for a Special Birthday. […]
